The first nationwide network for machines is now available in Texas.

The Machine Network is live in Houston, Texas! With 12 RPMA access points, Ingenu’s network covers an area larger than New York, Boston and San Francisco combined: over 2,200 sq. miles! With the Internet of Things gaining traction every day, the Machine Network is ready to provide consistent, reliable data connectivity for tens of billions of devices in Houston alone.

RPMA technology enables machines and devices to communicate more efficiently and reliably than ever before. With the launch of the Machine Network in Houston, municipalities, agencies, and local businesses will be able to leverage its always-available, ubiquitous coverage to build Internet of Things applications.

The Machine Network is rapidly being deployed across the country. To find out when the network is coming to your area, check out our nationwide coverage map.

Bringing the Internet of Things


“Austin is a creative, innovative city where people come from all over the world to turn their good ideas into reality,” commented Steve Alder, Austin City Mayor. “This type of machine-to-machine connectivity will get Austin that much closer to becoming a truly smart city.”

Ingenu’s Machine Network is powered by the company’s patented RPMA® (Random Phase Multiple Access) communication technology, which provides robust, reliable connectivity across a variety of operating environments.  Due to its superior range and capacity, RPMA requires minimal infrastructure investment.  As a result, the three densely populated Texas markets are served by a mere 27 RPMA access points, which is magnitudes less infrastructure than would be required with cellular networks.



Larger than the state of Maryland, Houston is the fourth most populous city in the United States, trailing only Los Angeles, New York and Chicago. Home to NASA’s Manned Spacecraft Center, “Houston” also has the unique privilege of being the first word spoken on the moon. Now, with RPMA coverage, Houston can enjoy being one of the first cities in the United States to be part of the nationwide Machine Network.


Every good success story starts with an idea. Putting pen to paper is one thing; prototyping, manufacturing and launching a killer app takes real grit and determination. With the Machine Network, Ingenu aims to make your IoT experience simple. Whether you’re working solo out of a garage or working for a multinational corporation, getting started with the Internet of Things has never been easier.

The Machine Network Brings IoT Connectivity to Houston
The Internet of Things (IoT) is supposed to have billions of devices connected that will bring greater efficiencies and savings. But how exactly is that done? The IoT requires well placed sensors that transmit information wirelessly back to the cloud or other storage medium. That information is either used live for things like monitoring or control or is analyzed later to optimize and automate processes. In this document, we will show you ways in which this vision has already been achieved around the globe using Ingenu’s wireless technology, RPMA.

The IoT requires wireless technology to connect devices that collect information. Ingenu is a wireless connectivity provider dedicated exclusively to machine connectivity. Ingenu’s Random Phase Multiple Access (RPMA) technology provides wireless connectivity to devices allowing them to communicate back to their owners. RPMA has connected smart devices for years. RPMA is a thoroughly proven technology enabling dozens of private networks including verticals such as the smart city, smart grid, asset tracking, and oil and gas since 2008.

In this collection of case studies, we’ll explore ways in which RPMA has brought value to citizens, cities, governments, businesses and enterprises. While some of these case studies are specific to a particular vertical, many may be generalized across other industries. The value of the IoT is real today, and RPMA makes that value real.
